Extrude Hone Porting in Houston TX

Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in Houston TX

Porting intake and exhaust manifolds is often a necessary step for achieving optimal performance in an engine. As a motorsports enthusiast, you probably already know this. But can you name the number one method for porting?

Hint: it’s not hand porting.

It’s extrude hone porting in Houston TX.

AFM ProcessExtrude Hone AFM’s founder actually pioneered the use of abrasive flow machining for Extrude hone porting in 1974. Though the first application of extrude hone porting was designed for a chainsaw motor, the technique has since been adapted for:

  • Racing engines
  • Muscle cars
  • Motorcycles
  • Personal watercraft
  • High-performance trucks

How Extrude Hone Porting Works

Whereas hand porting can only improve surfaces that hand tools can reach, extrude hone porting in Houston TX can improve the entire passageway and carries no risk of ripples or unevenness. In extrude hone porting, a putty-like polymer media loaded with abrasive grit is passed through the passages in a manifold under pressure from a hydraulic ram. As the polymer runs through the part, it becomes a flexible slug that sands away material evenly on all sides of the hole or passage. Our polymer media is designed to allow the abrasive grit to recirculate constantly, so that fresh abrasive is always contacting the surfaces being honed. The process can be controlled with a high degree of precision to ensure that the porting gets done to the exact specs you have calculated will enhance your engine.

Benefits of Extrude Hone Porting in Houston TX

AFM ProcessAFM ProcessExtrude hone porting in Houston TX can deliver many benefits for any passage that gas or liquid will be flowing through. For an internal combustion engine, the most important part to extrude hone is the intake manifold. However, we can also hone other vital parts and ensure they are perfectly flow matched.

This process does not alter flow volume, but it does improve flow velocity. Combustion becomes more intense, encouraging:

  • Increased horsepower
  • More thrust
  • More torque
  • Increased fuel efficiency
  • Reduced emissions

The exact benefits you’ll see in each of these areas after extrude hone porting in Houston TX depends on how your engine is configured. However, you can expect to see up to 25 percent increase in flow after honing an intake manifold, which will give you an idea of how much performance will improve.
